I am a stew kinda girl...that is what I grew up on...we ate them probably 3-4 times a week. They are a little different from here though...We make different versions: my kids LOVE tomatoe, I love cabbage...my mom made a killer cauliflower. So many variations!
I love soups too though...my mom's specialty was split pea, mine is a Barefoot Contessa recipe: Lentil Sausage Soup Recipe : Ina Garten : Recipes : Food Network
I like everything DH & the kids like certain types of soups/stews but they are pickier so it's hard to make something everyone likes.
I make a yummy chicken noodle soup (from scratch) the Russian/Polish way where you simmer the broth for a long time, strain it and cook the noodles separately that you serve it with; this one is DH's favourite. For the kids, I cut up the chicken & carrots and put them back into the soup with the noodles.
I also make homemade cream of tomato soup, pumpkin soup, Harvest soup (with butternut squash). And then in the crockpot - chili, beef stew, Hungarian goulash. I wanna try lamb stew!!!
My MIL and my mom make a ton of soups - split pea, veggie/chicken, red borscht, green borscht, white borscht, pickle soup, milk soup, fish soup, chicken meatball soup... the list goes on & on. I don't make any of these b/c DH and the kids are so picky on soups!
